AIRLINE SAFETY RANKING 2016
JACDEC stands for Jet Airliner Crash Data Evaluation Centre, providing global safety analysis about commercial aviation since 1989. The German founders Jan-Arwed Richter and Christian Wolf have written a number of books about aviation accidents Jacdec books. Since 2002 JACDEC developed under that term social research a global as a service, detailed information about an airline are with costs. The JACDEC Safety Index was developed from their own database. The Centre also monitors current safety occurrences and provides updates on airline safety issues in social networks.
JACDEC는 Jet Airliner Crash Data Evaluation Centre의 약자로, 1989년을 이래로 상업 항공에 대한 국제적 안전 분석 연구를 제공한다. 독일인 설립자인 Jan-Arwed Richter and Christian Wolf는 수 많은 항공사고 JACDEC 서적을 썼다. 2002년 이래로 JACDEC은 비용과 함께 항공사에 대한 정보를 디테일하게 제공하는 국제적 사회분석 서비스로 발전했다. JACDEC 안전 지표는 그들 고유의 정보로 개발되었다. 이 기구는 사회에 최신 안전 사고를 감시하고와 항공사의 안전 이슈를 제공한다.

JACDEC develoved The JACDEC Safety Index is a probabilistic
measurement of past airline safety.
The index is
based on JACDEC now 12 years of accident analysis and a variety of official
sources and documents of recognized institutions. During this time, the index
every year got more complex and meaningful.
It now has a
level which allows us to compare the safety status of all the busiest airlines
in the world combined.
Safety Index calculation is currently based on eight basic components.
Annual Revenue Passengers Kilometers (RPKs): By
using this number, we determine the flight performance of an airline. At nearly
all major airlines, it is a default value. For calculating the index we use the
cumulative RPK‘s – depending on the age of the airline – 30 years back.
Fatalities: For calculating the index we include all
deaths among all occupants on board commercial passenger flights of an airline.
(Time from boarding to de-boarding) For calculating the Index we use the number
of victims – depending on the age of the airline – up to 30 years back.
Total losses: The so-called "Hull Losses" are
another core component of the calculation. Thus all accidents, by definition,
refer to operations where the aircraft is destroyed, or was no longer
Serious Incidents: This "ingredient" in our
index calculation is still relatively new. Only since the "critical
mass" of air accident authorities is achieved, generating the appropriate
report density to be used to calculate in the JACDEC Index. The term
"serious incident" is defined by international standards and referred
to incidents where an accident was only narrowly avoided. A serious incident is
weighted less than a Hull Loss.
Accident - Free Years" The number of years without a
hull loss accident, backward from the current reference year to the most recent
total loss (Hull Loss) of an airline. The more accident-free years an airline
got, the better the relationship between flight performance and accident
history resulting in an improvement of the JACDEC Safety Index.
IOSA Membership" Is an airline through the IOSA
audit successful and receive an unqualified certificate, this is also included
in the index. IOSA stands for "IATA Operational Safety Audit" to
determine a recognized program of the airline association IATA, to operational
structures and quality management within an airline. Meanwhile, over 300
airlines have received an IOSA certificate. Although an IOSA membership has
little impact on our index, airlines that doesn´t have it were downgraded by a
small quantum. IOSA website
The Time Factor: When calculating the total accident
history of an airline, we applied an time weighting factor (the Exponential
Moving Average – EMA). This additional formula ensures that older accidents
contributes to the safety index by a lesser degree than newer ones. The farther
an accident is back in time, the weaker its impact.
Country Transparency: As a new component we introduced in
2013 was the transparency of the controlling authority of Aircraft Accident
Investigation. Depending on which country we established different levels of
transparency. Countries in the Level 1 best in terms of publication all relevant
flight safety events in that particular country, Level 2 for single or only a
few publications, and Level 3 for no publications of the Aircraft Accident
Investigation, or the non-existence of the relevant authority.
